GIS/Spatial data and mapping

Kaitiaki o Ngahere offers a range of services related to spatial data and analysis, from simple mapping projects to complex weed strategy forecasting. 

A Geographic Information System is any system that captures, stores, analyses, manages, and presents data that are linked to location.  In the simplest terms, GIS is the merging of cartography and database technology.  Geographic Information science allows complex patterns and relationships to be visualised and analysed in the context of real landscape space and over time.  GIS technology is vital in all of our projects, and routinely used from the planning stages to the initial operational work through to the follow-up control, reporting and mapping.

We use GPS (Global Positioning Systems) for all our fieldwork to assist with follow-up control in subsequent seasons, and for thorough reporting and analysis.  GPS units are carried by staff routinely - tracklogs are recorded and sites of interest are waypointed.  This ensures that no areas are missed or covered twice, and sites that are isolated are recorded and the information made available for follow-up control next season.  This information can be provided in a format to suit your operating systems and requirements.
